*** This fiasco was recycled on 30 Rock where Jenna Maroney herself served as the million-point prize for collectors of "Surge Points" in late 90s commercial. An obsessed fan who had collected the points for 15 years showed up and demanded Jenna as a slave; Jack got her out of it by pointing out the ravages of depreciation on an aging c-list actress and calculating her actual value as $2,000. The fan took the money, saying back home in Arizona that much would buy him "a castle and a pillowcase full of meth."
